“Bingo the Potcake” is the new mascot for the IAAF BTC/Bahamas World Relay Championships 2015 which is scheduled to take place May 2-3, in Nassau, Bahamas.
LOC CEO and Vice-Chairman Mike Sands introduced ‘Bingo the Potcake’ as the Relays mascot.
Meanwhile, the Hon. Daniel Johnson, Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture during a press conference held by the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) at the National Stadium, said they “are making a bid for The Bahamas to become a permanent location for the International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF) World Relays.”
According to Minister Johnson, who said that the Ministry is making the bid to help boost not only track and field on the island, but sports tourism, every Bahamian must be on board and do their part in promoting for the service industry as part of Team Bahamas. This, he added should include every taxi driver, waitress, doorman, police officer, and that the vendors must work to make it happen.
He noted that last year they had the fastest track, which produced some of the fastest times, and this year, “ we will have the fastest man,” he said.
